For Round 4 of the GVC MTB Winter XC sponsored by Ian Brown's Cycle Shop will be at La Pomare
No parking on site
Signs will be put out from la houguette school
Sign-on and practice from 8.30am, sign-on closes 15 mins before each race start.
This course will have a mix of flowing single track descents (with a good surface despite the weather we've been having), some tighter more techy sections, steep climbs and some flat (though muddy field sections), so it should be a good mix offering something for everyone.
New to racing? If you've never raced with us, don't worry- you are very welcome to come along and try things out. We have a Sport category that's a good introduction. If you're not a member you can enter up to 2 races for £5 on the day (which includes insurance). If you want to continue racing you'll have to join the club, but this is now a reduced fee of £30 for the remainder of the season.
If you want your results to be recorded you will need a transponder chip. Chips will be £5 to rent plus an additional £5 deposit which you will get back when you give the chip back to the timekeeper or organiser at the end of the race.
